I think I may have to listen to Issues on my way to work today.

Here's why its a good idea... be friends with a hairstylist.

I got this text after I signed offline yesterday to get ready for work.

Jared: where are you when I need you!!!!!

Me: getting ready for work!!! lol whats up?

Jared: Im wanting to comb in dark highlights because Im having pics done today and I cant get into my reg. salon. can I just comb them in, would it look the same as if she did it?

Me: I would only maybe do a few pieces around your face 'cuz its too easy to fuck it up doing it yourself.

Jared: well fuck

Me: see if you were here Id hook you up.

Jared: if I fuck it up, Im gonna be goes nothin...

Me: DO NOT use an ash color. It will turn green. Let me know how it goes.

Jared: Im using black

Me: Dude you dont put black on top of bleach blond. It will have a muddy greenish cast to it.

(10 minutes later)

Jared: hm. I got scared and washed it out.

Me: Good. You would not have been happy with it at all. Why don't you just leave it?

Jared: I guess I am leaving it, lol...for now.

I rule. =]

What to do...

My long-time readers most likely remember Josh.

For those who don't, I dated Josh last summer for about a month and a half, knowing from the get-go that he was moving to Wisconsin. The last week before he left was kind of weird and awkward due to the fact the he (wrongly) thought I'd developed feelings for him. But by the time he left, we were on good terms, and we've stayed in touch.

So he texted me the other day and tells me he's moving back within the next couple of months. He's moving in with his aunt and transferring back to his old job.

He is kind of making me think he's wanting to pick up where we left off. Saying things like "we" should get season passes to Busch Gardens this summer, and texting me 3-4 times a day, as opposed to the once a week or so he's been texting me since he left.

So here's the thing. I'm more than willing to be friends and hang out with him. I'm just not sure I want anything beyond that.

I had some issues with him when we were dating that I never brought up because I knew we were just a temporary thing.

I also have some issues of my own that have nothing at all to do with him.

So...I'm bouncing back and forth between just letting whatever's gonna happen happen and bring the issues up as the opportunity arises. Or letting him know up front that I'm not sure I want to go there again and tell him why.

This song

will not get out of my head.

I just hope she's singing that to her girlfriend-beating (ex)boyfriend...

I can read you like a book.

I love to read. I don't make as much time for it as I should though.

I enjoy horror, historical fiction, gothic/paranormal romance, and poetry (I own the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe).

But my absolute favorites are biographies/autobiographies. People fascinate me.

Here are some autobiographies that I've read:

Gypsy by Gypsy Rose Lee
My Autobiography by Charles Chaplin
Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
The Long, Hard Road Out Of Hell by Marilyn Manson
Tommyland by Tommy Lee
Save Me From Myself by Brian "Head" Welch (formerly of Korn)

I have yet to read the autobiographies of Nikki Sixx, Dave Navarro and Anthony Kiedis. Fieldy (bass player from Korn) has one hitting the shelves in a couple of weeks. I'll be picking that up.

I've also read biographies on Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Led Zeppelin, U2, Korn, and a lot of other bands.

There's a couple of books on Alexander The Great (my fascination with whom I totally blame on a certain friend of mine *coughjaredcough*) that I'm looking to get. I may just have to order them online.

So tell me, dear readers, what kind of books do you like?

I have no title

I know I haven't been updating much lately, and when I do it's really not anything with much substance.

Work has just been kicking my ass lately and I really don't have a lot to talk/write about.

I'm actually getting a day off tomorrow, so maybe I'll come up with something interesting.

I was very annoyed at this little kid running around my salon today while his mom was getting her hair done. He was playing with the chairs and getting into drawers and all that. I was in a cranky mood and was thisclose to going all Christian Bale on him.

"It's fucking DISTRACTING!"

Random acts of kindness

So I was cutting this Navy guy's hair today.

Not at all unusual considering I work 5 minutes from the largest Navy base on the East Coast. But I digress.

As I'm cutting his hair, this older lady comes in to buy some hairspray. We didn't have any on the shelf but I knew we had some in the back.

As I'm rummaging around in the back room looking for the hairspray, I hear them talking. I'm not really listening so I'm not sure what all they said to each other.

I go back out with the hairspray, and as I'm ringing up her purchase, she kind of leans in and quietly asks me how much the guy's haircut was. I told her the price, and she said "ring it up, I'll pay for it."

So she paid for a total stranger's haircut.

He was astounded and thought it was the sweetest thing ever.

So did I.

It did my heart good. =]

Is it wrong...

...that every time I hear Stevie Wonder sing "Isn't She Lovely"

...I think to myself, "how would you know?"

Holy crap...

Christian Bale went the fuck off on some poor DP on the set of Terminator Salvation.

Here's the audio.

I forgot he was Welsh...

The (uber-funny) remix!

Is he maybe a little more Bateman
than Batman?

I feel like this:

I've worked the last 7 days in a row. I have one more day to work until I'm off. And I'm only off the one day.

We had a girl quit last week, which leaves us with 3.

We're all working extra to keep the shifts covered.

I'm actually getting 2 days off next week though.

But still...
